This substantial detached house enjoys a delightful setting surrounded on three sides by its mature, secluded gardens affording the property a great sense of privacy and seclusion. The house has been thoughtfully extended to the side which enhances the already comfortable accommodation however, there is scope for further extension if additional space is required (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained). The accommodation currently comprises a generous entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen, cloakroom, four bedrooms (the master with en-suite shower room) and a bathroom. Although now requiring some general updating the property has the potential to provide a very comfortable home and is considered well worthy of any expenditure required.

To the front of the house is a double width driveway providing off street parking for two vehicles and access to the integral double garage which also incorporates a utility area. The gardens are attractively planted with a wealth of shrubs and other plants for year round interest.
